that was made by a relatively unknown movie producer. demonstrators firing their guns in iraq setting at least two police cars on fire near the u.s. embassy. it comes a day after four american soldiers were killed on an american base in afghanistan by insurgents who were dressed as american military members. kabul, karachi, pakistan the two main hot spots this morning. more from pakistan just ahead. first to anna coren live in cable for us. what's happening? >> soledad, there were protests on the street, as you say, not far from the u.s. embassy here in kabul. about 300 protesters attacked police and 15 officers were injured, including the commander. they burnt two police cars, along with a bunch of tires, and we approached the scene. however there were reports that guns were being fired and that they were attacking westerners. we had to keep at bay. certainly that violence that we've seen across the muslim world has finally spread to afghanistan. the government has really tried to keep a lid on it by banning youtube so that people couldn't view that inflammatory video. but as we saw today, th

. >> well, let's see what i've done since i came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they've been decimated. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so, up know if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> so that's obviously steve croft and not scott pelley. you hear a lot on the democratic side, they tick off those exact same things and say, foreign policywise, and the polls support him, the american people think we're doing okay. >> he said osama bin laden is dead. and al qaeda is on the run. al qaeda is not on the run. what we've seen is al qaeda targeted and assassinated our ambassador in libya. that's -- that's the case. and then he called that a bump in the road. these are four dead american bodies who are in the road. so i think he's absolutely wrong there. when he talks about pulling out of iraq, what we now know is that his military advisers said leave people in iraq. 15,000. he wasn't able t

soldiers of freedom as much as anybody in afghanistan and iraq. we should all recognize that. i also think we should back up a half step and realize, this is not just about libya. you don't get simultaneously attacks in benghazi and cairo, and libya and egypt on a purely local basis. and you don't get them on 9/11. a day when we're already honoring terrorist attacks in the united states, without a fair amount of collusion and a fair amount of planning. so i think you have to look at this in a larger context. it doesn't matter if the average libyan likes us or dislikes us. there's a substantial faction, particularly in benghazi, which was sending people to iraq to kill americans. there's a substantial faction in egypt which wants to defeat the united states and destroy israel. that faction looks for opportunities to do things to hurt the united states, and yesterday was an example of an attack that's part of a very long war. we're going to be at, i think, for a very, very long time. and we need to have an honest national conversation about how serious this war is. >> mr. speaker, you connec

qaeda through the drone program. he has shown balance in bringing our troops back from iraq -- >> sure, but -- >> he's sending a message. he's sending a message with the ships, destroyers that are in the north mediterranean sea, with the marines going in to our embassy. you know, in northern africa. he's sending a message by talking to all the presidents in the region, about what american values are, condemning the film. but also saying we will not tolerate attacks on our embassy, our consulates, and we want to see them doing the right thing and protecting this and we want to see peaceful action here, rather than what we've seen the last couple days. i think you see a very strong and decisive and steady president, and, brooke, yesterday we got good news on the fe you've also seen the president talk about nation building here at home, in america, and trying to make sure we're getting jobs, and growth, and investing in the people here at home. >> but mr. ambassador the fact is the state department, the defense department, had to do a little cleanup after the president's statement. they d

the president make the tough calls in the situation room. and today our troops in iraq have finally come home so america can do some nation building here at home. that was a change we believed in. that was a change we fought for. that was a change president obama delivered. >> you did that three or four more times in that speech where you talked about the jobs are back and banks are lending again and taxpayers aren't footing the ball, wall street has been bailed out. >> thanks for that beautiful rendition and summary -- i don't know why i used all six minutes i could have done zblsh. >> see, 35 seconds. >> i could have talked about my childhood for the last five minutes. >> hope and change -- >> thank god for that universal health care coverage with mental health benefits. >> back on track, hope and change. >> we're on track. doing fine here. >> on my track, this is a dictatorship here at this table. the hope and change has been a lot of the theme. how vulnerable do you think the president is? >> let me roll back a little and i'll answer that. my goal last night was to give people i thought i ha

, gang rapes in syria. iraq is unraveling because of our residual force in afghanistan. they all know we're leaving and karzai becomes more and more erratic in his behavior. this latest showdown between the president and the prime minister of israel is all -- much more troubling to me than whether mitt romney said the right thing or the wrong thing. >> senator, i'm sorry, would you advise him -- >> one thing i don't do, because i'm the loser -- >> senator mccain! >> is advise people. you don't want a loser to advise -- >> you are a winner for coming on the show with us this morning. it was very nice to see you. >> could i just say, this conversation needs to continue, not only about this incident but the entire middle east. and could i just say again, i believe the libyan people are grateful to america and i believe that we need to continue to be involved in that very difficult situation. thaven thanks for having me on. >> thank you, senator mccain. i think a lot of people would agree with you. we'll keep that conversation going. we do have to take a quick break. john berman and myself w
